Happy 90th Birthday - Vocalist Sony Holland Tribute To Peggy Lee

Peggy Lee, was born in Jamestown, North Dakota on May 26th 1920. She is best known for her seductive rendition of "Fever" and lesser known songs such as "Come Rain or Come Shine."


When Lee was not performing she was reading the essays of Ralph Waldo Emerson who gave her the inspiration to carry on with her music. She had a fanciful, flavorful and fulfilling life doing what she loved. She lived her passion and loved her life.


I wanted to share with you a tribute original song written by Jerry Holland and performed by Sony Holland to honor one of the greatest female jazz vocalists around. Peggy Lee was an inspiration to Sony and as Sony puts it "I'm a huge fan and always will be." Peggy Lee was a gift to all of us. Below is a video of Sony performing "Blame It On Peggy Lee." Enjoy! Happy 90th Birthday, Peggy Lee.

Fever must be one of the most famous songs of all time. Even though Peggy Lee is way before my time, it's still hard to believe that she's 90.

I love Peggy Lee and I, especially, love the song Jerry wrote with Sony performing it. What memories of good times in San Francisco hearing it brings back!

Happy birthday, Peggy Lee...I get a fever every time I hear her beautiful song!
